Control Escape

CD: Generation Of Waste

After scanning the track listings (titles like “Back On The Drugs,” “Kenny’s Big Adventure,” “Animals Will Hurt You,” and “We Went To Ireland”) I was pretty much predisposed to expect something… different.

Those suspicions were confirmed right from the drop of my digital needle, as track one opened with the grinding drone of electric fuzz guitar. I wasn’t quite sure where this was going… until, rising from the grind, starts some very palatable ‘90s style alt rock. This band is loaded with electricity, in the sound, the lyrics, the production and performance. Driving beats, strong vocals, nerve-edge guitar work—its all there.
